Just watched that Bathurst highlights video and it’s pretty impressive. Got to watch next year.29th December 2014, 10:22 at 10:22 am #289702
Has to be 2008 Brazil for me too. In fact 2008 was the first F1 year for me. I guess that race got me addicted to F1 so much.7th December 2014, 22:05 at 10:05 pm #288317
1. Hamilton – Most of the time looked unstoppable in the lead. Showed he has an edge in race craft and race pace over Nico. Made no stupid mistakes as in earlier seasons. Was beat in qualifying however I’m not convinced he sets up his car for quali.
2. Alonso – same old story with Alonso, seems to deliver regardless of car deficit even though his quali pace is still lacking.
3. Ricciardo – I’m probably offending most of you by placing Ricciardo so far down the list but I simply refuse to believe he’s THAT much better than Vettel. I think Redbull have the 2nd fastest car this season, and therefore I’d expect Ricciardo to deliver exactly the results he got. Whatever Vettel’s problems are, it seems wrong to just explain results gap by Ricciardo’s excellence. Having said that he was very good in races and quali. Never made mistakes and showed good pace throughout the season.

On TV because very few parents are stupid enough to let their 3 year old kid in a go cart.15th May 2014, 14:18 at 2:18 pm #260490
Strongly disagree with raising weight limit to allow drivers to stay at their comfortable weight.
F1 is a sport of speed and weight proportionally counteracts speed.
1. Let the teams design cars as fast as they can make them. Too much effort was spent making racing appealing to general public instead of concentrating on ensuring F1 is still a pinnacle of motor sport which it is losing slowly.
Safety keeps getting better and yet cars get slower.
2. Driver is part of the team, if team tries to save weight with car why shouldn’t driver contribute to overall package.
3. Driver is an athlete of sort and just as in any other sport you need to push your body to get result. You don’t see fat runners or short basketball players. Some body types are just not suited to certain sports and so in F1 you need to be small to go quicker. If you’re not then you don’t belong in F1.6th May 2014, 20:16 at 8:16 pm #259022
As good as WEC is it’s not on frequently enough and when it happens it’s too long. Perhaps I’m too F1 trained where I have to watch lap times every lap and WEC needs a different approach.11th July 2013, 1:00 at 1:00 am #238750
I’m guessing then Nascar is not at all physically demanding? Can’t see 70 or even 60 year old racing F1 cars at speed.14th October 2012, 13:31 at 1:31 pm #212535
Exactly how is pass on a broken car be praised so highly? perhaps Petrov on Button should be considered too then?2nd September 2012, 11:29 at 11:29 am #209025
What is so sensitive about that information? Who doesn’t know cars are set up differently and higher drag is expected.
I wonder more why he posted that. Was that his attempt to blame the engineers for not knowing that graph before quali?27th May 2012, 15:05 at 3:05 pm #202325
Best Driver: Vettel or Alonso. Vettel for great pace on 30 lap old tires. Alonso for quick in lap when it mattered.
Worst Driver: Maldonado
Best Team: Redbull
Worst Team: McLaren for not ensuring Button does not come out behind Kovi, slow pit stop for Hamilton and not telling Ham how close Vettel was.
Best Overtake: none
Best Funny- moment: Vergne on inters
Most Surprising Result: Button not making any progress
Least Surprising Result: McLaren screwing up
Special Mention to: Massa and Kovi for good performances

I mean it is too conservative, not about pure speed as it was before. Wheel to wheel action is also not quite real.10th April 2011, 22:15 at 10:15 pm #165071
I will not agree with that. Development is required to achieve speed, nothing else. Lately all teams do it sustain speed through any possible means that are not yet banned. I can understand reducing speed through safety measures but for excitement factor, F1 can do better.
I can agree with engine durability but because teams are in charge of this area of development, they can achieve durability without compromising performance. Tires on the other hand are limiting performance and are out of teams’ control.10th April 2011, 20:51 at 8:51 pm #165069
Pirellies are awful tires in my opinion, half way through the race you could see 80% of the track covered with marbles. Considering every driver is saving tires, that’s pretty bad. May be next year we’ll fuel car’s lighter too and see how far each driver car get?
If you want excitement, not that we need it but if you must do it artificially, make 3 stops mandatory and give drivers tires that can last 1000km. This sport if about going fast, not saving fuel/tires/engines and f*cking planet.
